Paste Magazine for $9.50 after rebate

Paste Magazine has started to include a DVD as well as a CD with each issue. Magazines.com currently has a deal giving $5 off Paste magazine. The Google check out coupon is good for $10 off 20. (Not sure if it works w/ magazine.com's $5 off coupon if you order just the one subscription since I ordered a second magazine at the same time.) If you shop thru E*ates you get 22% back.

for anyone looking for a great magazine covering everything from folk to modern rock (with an independent feel), look no further. This is a fantastic deal.

Great deal, especially since it is monthly now. Unfortunately, it doesnt have a dvd every month.

I wondered about that. My subscription had lapsed an issue or two ago and the last one didn't have the DVD but I had hoped it was just a lapse for the one issue. It wasn't that many issues ago that they added the DVD and I thought their announcement was that it was to be with each issue. Still a very good magazine and CD.

The DVDs usually have music videos and short films. They probably average every other or every 2nd magazine. EVERY mag comes with a CD of about 20 artists. The magazine is nice too. I just logged into my account and was able to renew an additional 22 issues for only $34. Great deal.

Warning- the DVDs that come with this magazine have a "Paste" logo on the screen the entire time. I would have subscribed to this magazine if they hadn't ruined the DVD like that.

Order a cd from a particular list at tower for 7.99 and up and get a free 4 issue subscription to paste.

the magazine itself is pretty terrible, but the DVD I got from it had a Black Keys video and Pink Noise by Kaki King which was worth the $9 (!) cover price.

Hey, it is all what you are into. This magazine isn't Rolling Stone - I doubt you will ever see half-naked artists on the cover. This is more for the NPR (National Public Radio) set - think Entertainment Weekly for the more indie/folk/organic population. They do cover mainstream artists, but I doubt you will see much about Beyonce or Metallica.

There is an articles section, then the typical music/movies/books/video games review sections.

I think the magazine itself is slightly above average (they tend to grade a little weakly - I have yet to see a really scathing review of any product), but the DVD/CDs are worth it for me.

I used to get it free. The magazine wasn't bad.

Just a warning - Not every monthly issue of this magazine will come with a DVD. I have been a subscriber for a year now and some of the more recent issues have been lacking a DVD.

I was just looking at an issue at my friend's house. He says it's a crappy magazine, and I have another friend who agreed wholeheartedly, but he says that a subscription for under $20 may be worth it for the CDs they include. To give an idea of content/layout, one of the bigger stories in this issue was about the new Johnny Cash CD, and it took up only 2 pages. Of those 2 pages, about 1/3 was graphically eaten up with a large quote excerpt, and another 1/3 was eaten up with pictures. The rest was the article, so I'd say writing quality aside, it looks like bathroom reading to me. They also had a ton of real short reviews of movies and music. Like one paragraph short. If that sounds good to you, there you go.

my objection to the magazine is that it's not far-enough removed from MOR and mainstream artists. if you want a good music magazine, read Magnet.

That magnet magazine looks good.

Went to the homepage and I saw that Stuart Murdoch was on the cover, definitely seems like my kind of magazine.
